Hello Friends,

Thanks for posting your suggestions for the new name for this blog. Please keep posting & you can share as many names as you want. I will consider all. I must say, I found few really good names but I am looking for Best of the Best 🙂

Anyways, I am back to my business again. To-day I am going to talk about one more update from the Google. Google is known for the updates. Every few days we used to hear some news from the Google. Few days back Google has introduced “Search Options” in the Google Search. As we all know it includes various key features like Search according to type of results, timeline, Wonder Wheel & more. That’s really good from User point of view. But what’s there which effect more from SEO point of view? I believe, “Rich Text Snippet” is the most important thing as far as SEO is concerned as Google is considering keywords which appear in this Rich Text Snippet.
